Toxic douche Piers Morgan tried to insult Daniel Craig for wearing a baby carrier

Piers Morgan & guests at The Late Late

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz welcomed a baby girl recently. The pregnancy was notable because of their “advanced age” – she is 48 and he is 50. But most people were just generally happy for them. Rachel had discussed her desire to have a baby with Craig, and it felt like the pregnancy was something they had been working on for a while. Plus, they’re two well-liked an respected people among their peers, and everyone was basically like “yay, congrats!” Literally NO ONE thought “well, now that the man playing James Bond is a father again, he’s going to be super-emasculated.” Well, no one except Piers Morgan.

Yes, how dare a man – *checks notes* – carry his one month old baby in a baby carrier against his body. How dare a man be an active partner and devoted, hands-on father? Ordinarily, I wouldn’t give a sh-t about whatever this toxic, fascistic blowhard has to say, but Piers’ tweet became a jumping off point for men to talk about masculinity and toxic masculinity and more:

If you go on Piers’ Twitter – which I would not recommend – he seems to be enjoying the stupid culture war that he started. If you think men-carrying-babies is a culture war, and that only big manly men scoff at putting their babies in carriers. This is the dumbest controversy and Peak 2018. Ugh.

    The Twitter blowback was hilarious. Somewhere I saw a Morgan described as a “flaccid d*ck.”

    • ttu says:

      The first tweet by Jeff Tiedrich is all that nees to be said on the subject. Almost choked on my toast.

    • Esmom says:

      It was awesome. I also loved all the photos that men posted of themselves carrying their babies. So sweet.

    • teehee says:

      Any “men” who will not engage with their own offspring needs to just go extinct.
      Women pick your men well and don’t breed with BS for brains like this guy. Problem solved

      edit: my man carries my guinea pigs around like babies. He is confident in himself and this don’t faze him.

      • Aims says:

        My husband wore a baby holder and he changed diapers and he got up in the middle of the night. He was a hands on daddy and he’s a manly man. He is a role model to our sons and shows them everyday that a man takes care of his family and he shows our daughter that a man is a partner in everyway.

        A man takes care of his children. A douche bag is the one who shames a man being a father.

      • L84Tea says:

        My husband gladly, and proudly, carried our baby boys around everywhere we went. I don’t think it ever once would have occurred to him whether or not he was being “masculine” or not.

      • Pamela says:

        My daughter was 10 lbs 2 ounces when she was born…and only got bigger. (naturally) My husband carried her a lot. And at her size in particular…I’d say that was a damn manly thing for him to do. :)

      • Lydia says:

        Maybe his son wouldn’t have sided with JK Rowling against him if Piers had carried him more.

  2. Jenns says:

    Piers lives for this sh*t. I think it’s better to ignore him.

  3. Missy says:

    i love that first tweet there…please nurture your babies so they don’t grow up to be piers Morgan. That is too funny and true. Guess he never got any of daddies love growing up. This only makes Daniel Craig sexier, what a man.

    • Laura says:

      Honestly, this picture of Daniel Craig revolts me. How could anyone find this man sexy?
      He’s wearing a LIVERPOOL HAT.
      I MEAN, COME ON.

      • Chaine says:

        I was a bit put off that he appears to be wearing shorts over pants, but other than that, he ok 😉

    • jessamine says:

      I love me some Daniel Craig something fierce, but honestly the back of the baby’s head is the cutest thing going on in that pic. Holy heck.

  4. RedTop says:

    I wish people would stop reacting to what he says. He gets off from everyone’s responses, so of course he’s going to say the most ridiculous stuff. It’s the only way he’s noticed.

  5. smcollins says:

    Seeing him with his baby like that makes him more of a man imo. F*ck PM.

  6. herod says:

    A fist would improve that face

  7. Melania says:

    Piers Morgan is the worst.

  8. dietcokehead says:

    A man who loves and actively takes a role in raising his children is sexy af to me, but I guess that’s just not what Piers is seeking from his male companions.

  9. Kayzilla says:

    Piers tried to walk it back by saying he just hates the papoose device, even though he literally wrote “#emasculatedBond.”

    • Alix says:

      Hey Piers — Daniel Craig is an actor who PLAYS the role of Bond. He’s not really a secret agent for the queen! You seemed to be confused on that point, among others.

    • Swack says:

      Obviously he (Morgan) has never used one of those. They are the greatest and to me is a much safer way to carry a baby that young.

  10. Layla says:

    IMO, Craig has never looked hotter.

  11. Darla says:

    Pretty sure I’ve seen pics of Thor himself carrying his baby this way. Imagine thinking Piers Morgan is masculine. I am laughing too hard stop

  12. Lucy says:

    So who else is here for Chris Evans and Nick Offerman walking all over toxic masculinity?

  13. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Men plus baby carriers equals proud, secure, loving, sexy and committed.

  14. ShinyGrenade says:

    Grumpy Craig carrying his baby in a Free to Grow! Very cute!

    And Morgan is a moron… use your hands to carry your child. Lol.

    Babies love carriers. THEY EVEN NAP IN THERE! You can run errands with a sleeping baby strap to your chest! AWESOME! You can take babywearing dance class!

    • Swack says:

      My daughter and I would take walks (4 mile walks) using one. We would have at least 2 toddlers in a double jogging stroller (sometimes more), more walking (would take the whole crew with us) and it was the best way to carry the baby. We would switch who was carrying the baby halfway through.

    • Parigo says:

      Absolutely. Whenever babe got fussy, even at the house,
      I’d put her in the ergo and could continue doing whatever I was doing.

  15. HelloSunshine says:

    I don’t care who you are or what your gender is… baby carriers are a gift sent straight from heaven for any parent or caregiver of a baby lol my kid lived in one after he was born because not being right on top of Mom or Dad wasn’t an option apparently lol

    Baby wearing suits him very well btw!

    • AMA1977 says:

      I said above, but my husband LOVED the carrier and so did our kids. It was a godsend at the grocery store; I could strap in the baby, get the shopping done, and everyone was happy. My dad used to borrow ours to take the kids places (baseball games, long walks, etc.) when they were little, and he thought it was the greatest invention ever. Piers is probably just jealous that the baby gets to snuggle with Daniel Craig and he doesn’t.

  16. Case says:

    Men who take an active role in raising their child are sexy (and, you know, doing exactly what they signed up for when they got someone pregnant). I love the response tweets posted.

  17. Lindy says:

    My husband is a stay at home dad until next spring because that’s what works for our family right now. He is up with nighttime wakeups, he snuggles and cuddles our little guy, he says I love you and gives hugs to our 9yo son, and he’s just generally an affectionate, hands-on dad who adores his family, takes amazing care of us, and is the kind of man I hope both of my sons will grow up to be. He’s also incredibly confident and gives zero f$#*s what someone thinks of him for carrying the baby around in the Ergo or pushing him around the block in the stroller.

    Piers Morgan is straight up toxic and is everything I would hate for my sons to become.

  18. HK9 says:

    Morgan is an embarrassment.

  19. FredsMother says:

    It was only ever my husband that carried our daughter via a carrier on his chest. He insisted. Period. He said that he would never let me carry a heavy grocery bag so why should he let me carry a baby. He did it at home, on the road, in the tram. Everywhere. We didn’t have a car or baby stroller.

    He/We got a lot of criticism for it when we vacationed in the US. I remember one little old lady in a waiting room asked the room in general (must have forgotten her hearing aid) why I was not carrying the baby.

    In the Caribbean one nasty woman I worked with said that it was clear I had no interest in being a mother because my husband always carried the baby.

    Piers is not alone…A whole bunch of gender/role idiots are here to let us parents know how they want our lives to be organised.

    • Anitas says:

      That’s great if that worked for you, but I’d tell my husband to mind his own business if he insisted he would never let me wear my own baby in a carrier for whatever reason. Or even carry anything I wish. Babywearing is not just carrying a load, it’s a way of bonding with the baby. Again, whatever works for your family, I just feel this is an important point to make in light of Piers Morgan’s douchebag comments. He recently rambled about it on Good Morning Britain too, so he’s quite insistent at spewing this crap.

  20. Valerie says:

    Masculinity is so fragile.

  21. Crowhood says:

    Sick burn from simpering tit. Imma die using that phrase 😂🙌🏼

  22. Marnie says:

    Toxic masculanity at its finest. The unfortunate thing is that Piers has a bunch of sons, so he’s probably spread his terrible ideas on how to be a man. Sad.

  23. gingersnaps says:

    Piers need to go away and off into oblivion. Nothing wrong with fathers being fathers (taking care of their child), it’s not just a task solely reserved for women.

  24. Veronica S. says:

    Patriarchal is amazing, y’all. I would literally not even give something like this a second glance.

  25. tealily says:

    What part of making women swoon and advertising your potent sperm is not masculine? I don’t understand.

  26. Misty says:

    All this does is give him more attention. This is exactly what he wanted. He couldn’t give two shits about how a dad hold his baby.

  27. Jess says:

    I just want to say that I was never really a fan of Chris Evans. Not my favorite Chris by far and his print interviews always come across strange and neurotic BUT I’m back on Twitter after a 3 year hiatus and I love Twitter Chris.

  28. CocoNoir says:

    Piers Morgan is a toxic douche hag who also happens to be Rupert Murdoch’s wet nurse. Daniel Craig looks so happy wearing his cute little baby. I think he’s in madly love with both his wife and baby and is bursting to share the joy. I love to see men wearing babies in a papoose. It’s safe, comfortable and soothing to the child to be that close to papa. Nice work.

  29. entine says:

    Yeah we got a similar Tula carrier for our girl, but it had to be a neutral color fr my many husband to carry her haha, no pink or purple tulas for her.We got one with a mesh panel since we live in a hot place.
    Love to see him out and about.

  30. HeyThere! says:

    My husband wore both our babies, happily and loved every second!!! We both still do. He also did skin to skin care the first few weeks with me. He did skin to skin in the hospital when they were brand new and I swear if I wasn’t madly in love with him before that day….that sealed the deal! I can’t imagine the father of my children being any other way.

  31. Linda Reid says:

    I was raised by post war parents that really didn’t think Dad needed to do much with babies. Wrong! I can’t tell you how much I love these next generations of people that have these great Dad’s. I love all your stories.

  32. Parigo says:

    Jeff Tiedrich has the best tweets.
